CHEADLE DREAMS OF AN OSCAR DON CHEADLE is dreaming of ACADEMY AWARD success next year (05), because of the boost it would give his career.The OCEAN'S ELEVEN actor is being hotly tipped for a nomination after securing a GOLDEN GLOBE nod for his role in the critically acclaimed HOTEL RWANDA. He dreams an OSCAR might bring "unlimited choices - first crack at every script I see, being able to pick and choose which ones I wanted to do, which fit perfectly for my schedule for my family, for my schedule with my own desires and interests in taking on subject matters and characters that I want to do."But Cheadle doesn't relish the thought of becoming a household name and face and the subject of media intrusion.He says, "Right now, nobody pays attention to me. I do whatever I do. And it's great. I'm walking down the streets and it's no problem."
